  • Hi Harins, this question is not about Application Insights (AI). You may want to move your question to general visual studio forum or search for more specific forum

  • HI Harins,

    We can add WCF Service in Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 2013.

    First follow steps below to add a reference to a service in the current solution

    1.In Solution Explorer, right-click the name of the project that you want to add the service to, and then click Add Service Reference.

    The Add Service Reference dialog box appears.

    2.Click Discover.

    All services (both WCF Services and WCF services) in the current solution are added to the Services list.

    3.In the Services list, expand the node for the service that you want to use and select an entity set.

    4.In the Namespace box, enter the namespace that you want to use for the reference.

    5.Click OK to add the reference to the project.

    A service client (proxy) is generated, and metadata that describes the service is added to the app.config file.

    To update a service reference

    •In Solution Explorer, right-click the service reference and then click Update Service Reference.

    A progress dialog box is displayed while the reference is updated from its original location, and the service client is regenerated to reflect any changes in the metadata.

    Please check whether it helps fix it.

    With regards,
